It might seem like this is a fairly light meal, it’s not! This recipe for Mediterranean Salad is packed full of bright flavors. The spices in the dressing give it a bold taste that are sharpened by the tartness of lemon juice. The occasional vinegary drip from its pepperoncini peppers also pack a tiny flavor punch.

The recipe itself is fast and easy to make. It’s ideal for those nights where you’re feeling hungry but don’t want to make too many dishes. Plus, they are deceptively filling! You could serve these salads as an appetizer or a side along with a larger meal. More often than not, I just make them the main course. It pairs very well with a nice glass of red wine and some crusty bread like a baguette. If you are feeling more experimental (and less vegetarian), I suggest also topping it with a few chopped up anchovies.

The best part is that you can really add in whatever ingredients you have on available. For example, when it comes to cheese, you can choose to be traditional and add feta cheese. In my tiny kitchen though, I almost never have feta on hand so I just dice up some cheddar cheese instead. Other alternatives that would work are pepperjack, provolone, or even some shredded mozzarella. It’s really the dressing, olives, and pepperoncini peppers that give it the mediterranean flavor.

Preparing Mediterranean Salad In A Tiny Kitchen

No cooking is required for this dinner! Plus, it’s vegetarian. The counter space required is pretty minimal and you will basically just need a knife and cutting board to prepare the vegetables. Clean up is super easy too. All you will need to wash is a cutting board, knife, and a couple of forks and two bowls. This is an ideal meal for when you’re boondocking on a warm evening.

That’s it!

  1. Over purchasing seems to be a problem whenever we get into a specialty store. We went to an Asian Supermarket in January to buy a few unique essentials and have had an overloaded pantry for two straight months because of it! Self-control is so much easier in theory than practice.

  2. Yummy. If you happen to run into a Penzey’s spice store, their greek seasoning is to die for. It would also do great on this. Only one problem with Penzey’s, over purchasing for a tiny kitchen.
